I just bought a 19" monitor, and finally, got my resolution up from 800x600 to find out that i cant get to increse the xterm, Eterm, Firefox, Thunderbird, Gaim and everything to have an acceptable font size...
I mean, is there a way to set the whole system font to some minimal size?
I know how to change in almost every app (have to see if they can remember it, but thats just checking) but there are some i dont... xterm for example...ive looked at the man page, but there are so many options (just with the font subject, i do use several of the other flags) that i couldnt find the one i wanted, just to increase the font size... in Eterm there are 4 pre-set sizes, although i would like to increse it a bit more...
I use Enlightenment, so i dont have any Gnome/KDE control center to do anything...
As usual, any tips are welcome!

I can't provide much help but I can give you a hint: change the DPI globally with... one sec... xfce has some sort of script for settings the DPI globally...
This is the part where the DPI is set
# Those are my settings, change them as appropriate... # Xft DPI: 96 # Xft.hintstyle: hintnone/hintslight/hintmedium/hintfull # Xft hinting: 1/0 xrdb -nocpp -merge - << EOF Xft.dpi: 96 Xft.hinting: 1 Xft.hintstyle: hintmedium EOF
You might run the command with another DPI setting...
xrdb can be found in /usr/X11R6/bin.
Once again, this is just a thought, I don't know how successful this change will be. Good luck.
You might want to have a look on Google.
